Severna Park Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Aging-related skeletal pain responds nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Back And Neck Care Center has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Severna Park chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

Skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia come with aging. A new study described how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better method of determining vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Back And Neck Care Center hopes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. Another new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis found that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported to be anti-cancer, anti-tumor cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis (cell death), anti-metastasis, and anti-inflammatory. Rosmarinic acid is found in plant species like the mint. (6) Back And Neck Care Center is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan.
